Through our partnership with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR), we work together to challenge the causes and respond to the consequences of injustice and poverty.

For over 75 years, CLWR has served as a grassroots movement of Canadians committed to justice, peace and dignity for all people. One of Canada’s oldest and most trusted humanitarian organizations, CLWR focuses on developing long-lasting solutions for displaced and food-insecure people.

CLWR strives to foster sustainable development across the world, while supporting many Compassionate Justice initiatives within North America. In Canada, CLWR facilitates the engagement of Lutheran communities in refugee resettlement and provides funding to the ELCIC.

When making an undesignated gift to CLWR, a portion is given in support ELCIC Compassionate Justice initiatives, such as anti-poverty ministries in Synods, and peace and justice advocacy work throughout Canada.
